Michael Jackson

Nose
Fresh bread, well-toasted, buttered, and spread with grapefruit marmalade. A vase of flowers: orange blossom, surely?
Palate
Complex citrus and apricot flavours, very tightly combined, as though anxious not to seem showy. Discretion in the British tradition.
Finish
Orange oil. Perfumy. Bittersweet.
Comment
Vivid descriptors, but the flavours are very restrained. A most elegant whisky.

Dave Broom

Nose
Heady, aromatic and beautifully intense with floral notes, heather, a little smoke, fudge, sultana, honey, pot pourri and a sweetly subtle polished oak.
Palate
Sweet, rounded and honeyed with macadamia nut. The slightly heathery smoke hits mid-palate. Complex, subtle and rewarding.
Finish
A hint of smoke, fresh, a touch of oak dryness.
Comment
No woodiness at 43 Years Old, instead incredible intensity and freshness. Truly remarkable.
